Try these easy changes to boost your mood and your health.
1. Exercise is huge
The best way to feel happy, healthy and fit is to exercise. There is no substitute. Research shows that exercise will boost your mood, help you to sleep better and increase your self-esteem. This is partially due to the release of endorphins in your body as you workout. Endorphins decrease our sense of pain and increase our happiness and sense of pleasure.
If you want your mood to go up, increase your exercise. Working out doesn’t mean 60 minutes or 0; all or nothing. Working out to a ten minute app on your phone is still exercise. Start somewhere.
2. Put good food in your stomach
Ninety percent of serotonin is made in your gut. Serotonin is the chemical that makes you happy. That means, whatever you are putting into your body, could impact your mood. Do your best to stay away from frequenting antibiotics, processed foods and high sugar and carb diets. Healthy habits like taking walks, doing yoga, avoiding “toxic” people and eliminating negative self-talk will all help to minimize stress.
3. Find true peace of mind
How do we find true peace of mind? Try making a list of your values and see if you are actually living them. Are you worrying over little things in your life? Are you overscheduled? Your kids overscheduled? Take a look at your day-to-day worries and see if there are a few things you can easily cut out, that will give you more free time (and more peace of time).
4. Don’t compare yourself to others
A great way to feel healthy is to stay in tune with your body and its needs. When we compare ourselves to others, we focus our time and energy on trying to be something that our body and mind might not actually want us to be. As we compare ourselves to others we are giving ourselves a very unrealistic and skewed perception of reality. This can decrease confidence and even lead to depressive symptoms. Instead, work on becoming more self-aware. Reflect on your values, your goals, your current life situation and begin creating a realistic plan to get you where you are trying to go.
5. Dress your mood up
Of course, there are days when you want to cuddle up in yoga pants or sweats and just relax. Quite frankly, I think you should do that. However, don’t let this dress style be your only style. I know that the day-to-day routine can be boring or nothing exciting might be going on, but dress up anyway.
At least twice a week, wear something that makes you feel pretty or handsome. The way we dress and feel in our own skin makes an impact our confidence and our attitude about our day. There is nothing like a new dress, a great hair day, or a nice suit to lift your spirits.
Dress up your body, dress up your mood.
6. Your vitamins are important
EMPowerplus Q96 vitamin supplement is unique. The majority of vitamin and mineral supplements found in supermarkets and health food stores cannot be easily digested due to the size of the particles and the improper ratios of certain minerals and vitamins that depend on each other for full absorption. Many supplements also contain inferior chelates and low quality ingredients.
The unique formula and the advanced technology used to produce EMPowerplus™Q96 address these common problems, making EMPowerplus™Q96 the highest quality micronutrient formulation available on the market today.
Using cutting edge technology, minerals are pulverized to a size the body can use. While most supplements are produced in 4 hours, the EMPowerplus™Q96 micronization process takes up to 4 days.
Minerals are difficult for the body to digest in pure form. To overcome this, EMPowerplus™Q96 minerals go through a rigorous process that wraps them in organic molecules and binds them to proteins the body can easily recognize and digest.
Vitamins and minerals depend on each other for absorption in the body. For example, you need the right amount of zinc to absorb magnesium fully. Similarly, without vitamin D in balance, calcium cannot be readily absorbed. The micronutrients in EMPowerplus™Q96 have been deliberately proportioned and balanced for maximum absorption and effectiveness.
The average therapeutic dose of EMPowerplus™Q96 provides a full spectrum of micronutrients in high enough doses to sufficiently address deficiencies and promote proper metabolic functioning.
The good news? Current research suggests many symptoms of bipolar, depression, anxiety, and ADHD can be reduced or eliminated using the full-spectrum micronutrient formulation of EMPowerplus™Q96.
